Epic Content Marketing Strategies

Content marketing strategies to rock your blog…

Do you have a blog? Are you thinking about starting your own blogging business?

Two of the common challenges that everyone who wants to step into the blogging world are faced with is, What niche do I pick and secondly – what do I write about?

You need to implement content marketing strategies if you want to attract a following of people and more importantly, have them come back.

There is so much crap on the internet.

You land on someone’s blog or website and it looks like New York Times Square (very busy) and you can’t figure out what this blog is about.

You have approximately 6 seconds to grab someone’s attention or they are gone with the click of a mouse.

What do you do when you land on a site that is confusing looking and you don’t see anything interesting?

Exactly, you click the mouse and you’re gone.

Content marketing strategies -where to begin

The first thing you need to do is answer a simple question, What do you want?

Do you want to share information with people as a hobby?

Do you want to build a blogging business?

Do you want to make money?

The reason you need to answer this is because you need to have a purpose for your blog.

This is the foundation for you to build off.

You will design your content marketing strategies on your foundation for your blog.

The next step is to identify what is the niche that you want to target.

I highly recommend you choose something you are interested in and passionate about because it will become like a job after if you are not passionate about it.

Trust me, if your motivation is extrinsic, which means your only purpose is to make money, you will not last long.

So, you have chosen your niche and you have identified your target audience.

The more you focus on a specific subject the more you will attract and keep your targeted  audience.

Understanding content creation types

There is essentially 5 types of content creation for your blog.

1) Original. This is content that you write yourself.

2) Curated. This is snippets of several articles compiled together by other authors. This is done with software.

3) Co -created. This is when you collaborate with another writer/author to produce an article.

4) Consumer generated. This could also be referred to as guest blogging which someone else has produced an article that you publish on your site.

5) Sponsored. This is content that you have paid someone else to write for your blog.

You can use any of these types for content creation in your content marketing strategies.

The best is always original content because your audience will resonate with who you are and what you are about.

You don’t have to be a prolific writer to have a good following.

Educate, provide value, help people solve their problems and you will start to gather raving fans.

People are looking for relevant interesting information that helps them solve a particular problem.

The purpose of content marketing

Too many people are under the impression that content marketing is all about selling, selling, selling.

This makes you you feel like you are listening to an advertisement or worse, a virtual used car salesman.

That is the last thing your audience (customers) wants.

The primary purpose of your content marketing is to serve people with great value.

It is very easy to discover in any niche, what are the typical problems that people experience.

Then you provide a solution for their problem.

If you have no value to offer then you will become like one of the hundreds of millions of websites that no one really cares about.

The other thing that you need to keep in mind is that the king of search engines, Google, is watching your content and if they determine by their criteria that you are irrelevant you will not attract any organic traffic to your blog.

Ultimately you want to position yourself as an authority in your niche.

If your content marketing strategies are writing about books, gardening and making money online Google will reward you with a placement in deep cyberspace (where no one will find you).

Web content strategy – to create success

When you examine closely the business of anyone who works offline or online you will discover that they are usually following a system.

Your web content strategy is no different.

Unfortunately, most people discover this by trial and error. (this costs lots of money and time)

Most of the conventional (and online) business world works with a competitive mindset.

Imagine, that you want to start a blogging business, so you approach someone who is experiencing success in the same are of interest as you want to go into.

What would be their normal response if you asked them to teach you how to be successful?

Let’s just say it would probably not be too polite.

A competitive mindset is one where you have to take someone else’s business to be successful.

An abundant mindset recognizes that you create  not compete.

Your web content strategy should be one of creating value for others and like any business it is a numbers game.

Think long term and imagine your audience starts to know, like and trust you so they will buy from you many times over the years.

The Law of Reciprocation will work for you as you deliver great content and value for your audience and when you have offers to provide them with you will see a higher percentage of conversions on your sales.

Would you like to learn how to be successful with abundant mindset thinkers? Do you want to experience a better way? You can start your own global business right from your own home. Hundreds of thousands are doing it now! The problem for most is that they are trying to figure it all out on their own. Most will not make it because they are trying to compete not create.

  1. WOW, this article is jammed packed with great information. This should be sent to your list (sure you already did). What a great training blog. Thanks will tweet for you.

  2. Hi there!! Great post, and I specially liked the job part…”it will become like a job to you”, we need to do something we are passionate about, if it’s not, it’s pointless.

    Thanks so much.

    Jana

  3. This is a very good post.

    Well-played content marketing tactics will build authority, foster trust, create and activate brand advocates, and inspire referrals.

  4. David, a plethora of gems in your post today – I really like The Law of Reciprocation!

  5. A business without a strategy is a hobby period.

    Content creation and marketing revolves around sharing value to an eager audience who optin, subscribe and buy.

    If any of the above 3 are missing its because one isn’t sharing with the right audience or not enough value or both!

    And this Post is Super Value packed Thanks Dave!

  6. David, you’ve provided an excellent blueprint here for bloggers and those interested in content marketing! My favorite point: “An abundant mindset recognizes that you create, not compete.”

  7. love the strategies you shared here. thanks so much
